Learning new things every day while being stuck at home! This morning I learned this:
A shape is a defined 2-dimensional area. The two types of shapes are geometric and free-form, which differ in the contours they are characterized by. Geometric shapes are classified by name like circle, square, rectangle, and triangle. Free-from shapes are generally irregular, uneven, and often found in nature
The **Art*Journal*Journey* prompt for April is geometric shapes. I remembered in geometry learning the line was super important. So today my BAJ page has lines - some are rectangle or circular and actually count as geometric (like my background line stencil and circular 15 plus the vase) and some are free form and not geometric at all (like my flowers and leaves).
I then wrote in all the words to Psalm 107 on the BAJ page - they are on the lines and in the flowers and leaves - I got every word in there. I read a lot of the words upside down and that was a cool experience - I may do that again as it allowed me to think more of about the words. These words are so appropriate for what we are facing now. They detail how God saved us so many times when we called out to Him and repented. Saved us from persecution, disasters, starvation, etc.
The matching card is going to a lovely lady who is facing some GIANT battles that dwarf most of our concerns. I wrote my prayer for her and her doctors in the flowers and leaves.
Here are a few cards I made recently.
This one is a water color wash then edge sponging with a bit of Snowtex for the waves. The birds are SU! from one of the sea sets and the words are Impression Obsession - DK Designs.
This next one is a new peeking gnome image and sentiment from DRS Designs - I colored it with colored pencils, drew in the wall, messed up the bg with some ink so stenciled in some Magenta stencils to cover them up. The letters look like magical words to me.
Hugz and Be Well,
